The rain started again on the normally sun kissed Mediterranean coast of France so the 65th Cannes Film Festival came to a soggy finish with umbrella holders getting as much camera time as the movie stars. Cecilia Cheung looked perfect and perfectly at ease even though she was dragging the soaked hem of her gown.
I should probably know the name of the guy with her (the one without the umbrella) so if anyone can ID him...
Gong Li also braved the elements wearing an outfit that, unless she is representing a sponsor such as Dior or Louis Vuitton, has become almost emblematic: Empire waist with a tightly cinched belt, very low cut front (here a deep V) with few accessories to distract from what people actually turn out to see.
Once she got inside, Gong Li presented the best actor award to Danish heart-throb Mads Mikkelsen for his role in The Hunt.
